Rated 1 out of 5 by Effie83 from Ruined Halloween I just spent a few hours sewing this for my 10mo. She's 29", an inch over the height guideline for 1/2 size. I'm not an expert seamstress but I've made costumes and garments from patterns before. This is unusable. The costume itself, with 3/8 seam allowance, cut at 1/2 size, is equivalent to a 2T. It's WAY too big for my daughter and now I have to go buy a costume. I just went back to check the dimensions of the pattern itself. Just the back piece, from shoulder to heel, is over 28" long. The guideline is for a child whose total height is 28"! Absolutely ridiculous. I should have saved myself the trouble and printed a onesie pattern online from a private designer with good reviews. Instead I went with a well-known company to avoid this very issue and waste good material. So mad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deborah2 from Very Versatile I have been using this costume for 3 years, and have made just about every size of the fox and raccoon for all my kids from size 2 up. It's easy to add length to it as well, and I have even used this pattern to make sizes to fit up to an 8 year old. It's very easy to put this costume together, but I have also been sewing for 20 years.
